Been playing with AD and I do not know what information you require???
I have setup a AD console with users and group snap-ins. If you do not
know how to do this see your network adminstrator, as a course in AD is
past the scope of this reply.
You will notice you have an export option when you right-click on the
users, or group level objects in AD. From this you can export the information
to a achii file. Once in a AD.txt format you can append from with a correct
table structure and bring the information into a VFP table.

I ended up taking a week long course in Win2000 Active Directory and now
can get my mind around this. You are dealing with an OOP's OS and and
OOP's database (the actual AD catalog on your domain controllers). Buy the
way, hope you got two domain controllers .... !
What I have as yet not found out is how I can access the AD from within VFP
in real time. Do not know if this is possibly, but at least I got some data out
and usable in VFP tables.
